Though I was a little worried, I loved The turning but was slightly disappointed in possession and ashes to ashes, not that they were horrible books, I just think I was expecting alittle more b/c the turning is one of my favorite books ive read thus far. This book is definitly the ending to a great series! It seems everything is put to rest in this book and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!
In this book Carrie finds out more about herself. Through the whole series she's always been confused in knowing what she wanted out of life..with the men in her life and really just finding what she herself wanted out of life...her visions been blurred before and after she was turned but it all comes together for her here!
I expecially loved the henry's and her new found power. This book is jam packed just like all the others, amd you wont regret reading it!
After reading the first novel in this series I thought that it was a start to something great. The second book wasn't nearly as good, and the third was even worse than the second. I'm glad I sucked it up and finished the series by reading the last book. It was by far the best book out of the series, and I have a little more respect for this author now. I'm glad that Carrie's character didn't turn out to be as selfish and babyish as I thought she was going to end up. I think I'd read more from Armintrout, she only seems to be getting better. I'm looking forward to her next series Lightworld/Darkworld.
All Souls' Night is the last in the Blood Ties series, which started off strong with The Turning then quickly took a nose dive. Readers new to the series should not try to being here, as this installment picks up pretty much where Ashes to Ashes left off. The Oracle is dead, Cyrus is alive (again), and The Soul Eater is still threatening to eat both Cyrus and Nathan to become a god. Carrie, Nathan, Max, and Ziggy must thwart his evil plan.
If you have read the other books in this series it is worth reading this one as all the loose ends are tied up. However, be forewarned that the gross-out factor is very high in this book - for some reason Armintrout goes nuts with the torture and gory descriptions. Fortunately Carrie's sarcastic humor is still intact, which keeps this book from being totally goofy.
The fourth and final installment of the Blood Ties series. Its hard to describe, without giving too much away. The relationship between Carrie and Nathan is still filled with angst. There are hurdles to Bella and Max's happiness. Same cast of villians. Will the Soul Eater succeed in his plan to become a God? Can Carrie and Nathan stop him? I have mixed feelings about this book. I felt I had to read it, since I invested in the first three. Lots of action. Some suprises, expected and unexpected. The ending seems a little to good to be true. The book is fair.
Wow what an amazing series, I love it don't think this one is going to go back on my shelf I think I will keep it to read again. Absolutely the greatest....GREATEST ending and series in a long time, tears fears hopes and dreams all rolled up into four books. What a great Adventure these are a must read!!!!
I love this whole series! From the very 1st book I was immediately hooked and could not put them down. You get to see the struggles and mystery that Dr. Carrie Ames is going through after she is turned into a vampire. Between the love stories and the action, this series is one of my favorites. A must read for any vampire lover!!!!
I enjoyed this four book series quite a bit. Characters were memorable although very flawed. Their strengths were their loyalty, ability to forgive and hope. All characters faced horrible decisions and often made unfortunate decisions. The main circle of friends and lovers fought through horrendous battles to save mankind and the vampires and shifters from incalculable evil. They were lost to each other many times but kept fighting their way back. This has probably the most feel good ending I have read in a long time considering the outcome seemed dire. The books are often funny, tender, hopeful, frightening, and down right nail biting. Read all four books or you will not get the full benefit of the delightful finish. Give them a try you won't be disappointed. I often hate for a series to end as I will lose my latest "family" of friends. I was not sad when this ended as most all characters lives were greatly improved,
This book is very good even if at time I felt the need to yell at Mrs. Armintrout. It ends very nicely and if you have read the first three you must read this one, it is the conclusion and therefore should definitly be read.
I started reading TURNING, and was really drew me into this series. However the 2nd and 3rd were not what I expected, especially the 3rd one, but I stuck it out, and was glad I did. This 4th and final in series, definitely wrapped it up just fine, liked it like i liked the 1st. I didnt care to much for Carrie tho, felt like she was to self-centered, but really got to love the supporting characters. Gave it a 4 star, and do recommend to others.
I read the 4th, and what appears to be the final book in the Blood Ties series, with little expectation. I thought the 1st book was great, the next 2 book were horrible. But in All Souls' Night Jennifer improved the story and the characters dramatically. I don't have time for a full review, but if you have subjective yourself to reading the 1st 3, I definately recommend reading the last book in the series. You won't be disappointed!
I loved this book. I am sad to see this series end. It was great to see everything come together & see Carrie & Nathan finally admit they love each other. I would have like to know what happend to Cyrus. I assume he lived but did he go back to living the life he was living before.
